Baked Apple Crumble Oatmeal

Baked Apple Crumble Oatmeal
Staying on the theme of New Year’s resolutions, I have set out to make 2016 the year of less clutter! I have a bad habit of keeping papers, clothing and ingredients that I feel I may need at another date. However, by the time all the clutter has built up, I can never manage to find the item anyway. A general rule that has been proven time and again is that if you don’t use an item for at most a year, then you probably have no use for it. So in the New Year I plan to clean out my pantry, office and closet to reduce clutter and focus on organization. The same notion holds true in my clean eating philosophy. There is no need to have a 20-ingredient list of items that you don’t understand and most importantly, need. For example, most restaurant and store bought oatmeal and muffins have so many added sugars and artificial flavors. Most of us turn to these packaged items out of convenience. But what if I told you your weekly dose of sugary packaged oatmeal can be replaced by one recipe? This Baked Apple Crumble Oatmeal is packed with fewer, more wholesome ingredients and can be eaten for breakfast all week long. For an easy grab and go breakfast, portion the baked oatmeal into 5 containers so you have a healthy breakfast ready Monday to Friday. With the help of Truvia Calorie-Free Sweetener, you have all the comfort and sweetness of apple crumble without any added sugar.
